Have You Heard The Good News About Snail Mucin?

Have You Heard The Good News About Snail Mucin?

As someone who both loves face masks and has a tendency toward dry undereyes, I'm extremely vulnerable to the promises of an under eye sheet mask. THEN, when I found out there were under eye patches with my favorite miracle ingredient, snail mucin, I couldn't get my hands on a jar of them fast enough. 

Petitfee Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patches are sparkly, slimy, gold patches that reduce puffiness and add moisture to your under eye area. They're perfect to use before you apply makeup, as they prep the area, help soothe any patchy dry spots and calm swelling. Sometimes I just throw some on because they feel nice and I like a skincare ritual.

The masks come in a little pot, and you take each one out with the tiny included spatula. They tend to stick together, so you really do need that little spatula to make sure you don't accidentally get two eye masks. The masks are shaped like a comma, and some people put the larger end near the outer corner of their eye and some put it the opposite way. I tend to put the larger end where I have more dryness, so I flip-flop depending on what my needs are. The product is on both sides, so there's no right or wrong way to do it - follow your heart! 

These little masks won't make an enormous difference in your appearance. I think the best way to use them is to apply them for 20 minutes before you're applying makeup so you have a nice smooth base for your under eye concealer. They won't diminish your dark circles, but snail mucin is a fantastic moisturizer, and the best way to get your makeup to look flawless is to have a flawless canvass. Alternatively, these little eye masks are super fun to incorporate into your regular masking routine.
